Misanthropy is a poor guide in politics

There’s a misanthropic fallacy circulating that Americans “in Ohio,” meaning working people, don’t care about Trump’s connections to Russia; they just want to know about jobs. They don’t care about US wars; they just want to get their hands on more consumer goods.

In fact, polls show 80-percent of Americans want an independent investigation of Trump & Russia. Not because they oppose peaceful US relations with Russia but because they oppose corruption. For years, polls have shown majority opposition to US wars. But with a compromised & fractured antiwar movement, there has been no place to express that.

So much for misanthropy. It’s a dead-end that gets you nowhere.
